Pudina thengai chutney / Tamilnadu hotel style pudina thengai chutney / Mint chutney with coconut

I have already posted mint chutney recipe on my blog.Did you remember?I love that version and often used to prepare it .My kid is a big fan of ghee roast .Whenever going out side his dad used to search veg hotels for him.Once I tasted mint chutney from his plate and started loving that version from that moment itself .I was clueless and I didn't get recipe from anywhere.I have tried some recipe from google but never satisfied with the taste.

Few months back when I visited my collegue here in Chennai she served me uthappam with mint chutney and sambar.It was a surprise for me..the same taste again came to my taste buds.Her mom in law gave me the recipe . she is a master in hotel style preparations because once they had a hotel but it closed now.Anyway Im so happy and I tried it here and now whenever getting mint leaves Im preparing the same.
